    Obama's 4 Pinocchios on XL Pipeline....

    Now, I realize this is not the New York Times, so it's probably all a total lie, but....
    Washington Post

    Obama’s claim that Keystone XL oil ‘bypasses the U.S.’ earns Four Pinocchios

    “I’ve already said I’m happy to look at how we can increase pipeline production for U.S. oil, but Keystone is for Canadian oil to send that down to the Gulf. It bypasses the United States and is estimated to create a little over 250, maybe 300 permanent jobs. We should be focusing more broadly on American infrastructure for American jobs and American producers, and that’s something that we very much support.”

    – President Obama, interview with WDAY of Fargo, N.D., Feb. 26, 2015

    President Obama, seeking to explain his veto of a bill that would have leapfrogged the approval process for the Keystone XL pipeline, in an interview with a North Dakota station repeated some false claims that had previously earned him Pinocchios. Yet he managed to make his statement even more misleading than before, suggesting the pipeline would have no benefit for American producers at all.

    The Fact Checker obviously takes no position on the pipeline, and has repeatedly skewered both sides for overinflated rhetoric. Yet the president’s latest comments especially stand out. Let’s review the facts again.
